Yes, sort of. Go to position 0 in the file then do Command by Name from
the Edit menu then type this:
However, if the file has \r\n newlines it'll overshoot by the number of
lines before the line you end up on.
Of course there's always this:
f = open('thefile.py')
txt = f.read()
print(txt[9627:]) # Or whatever
